Default How Do You Verify You’re Not Buying a FLOOD VICTIM?

Here’s a question I thought of while reading “Is anyone collecting Saturns?“
http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=223534

How would you go about verifying a prospective vehicle was not exposed to flood water?

For example, if a $39.99 CarFax Report reads,
TOTAL LOSS VEHICLE
Vehicle declared a total loss
by an insurance company
Non-collision damage reported
okay, so...CarFax can not and will not tell us specifically why the car was considered a TOTAL LOSS, yet the car has a “REBUILT” title

Prized cars can be found in TN and KY. ...and we drive there to get them.

Is there any way to get your eyes on a paper-trail to assure yourself that you are not driving to look at a
floodvictim.

I am referring to a TOTAL LOSS VEHICLE with a “REBUILT” title issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Thank you
8, 9 or 10-hour drive is a long way to travel.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
